Winx Season 8: Oops! Aisha With Blue Eyes

While making screenshots for Aisha’s birthday fan art commission, I found a mistake in “Between The Earth and The Sea” (Winx season 8, episode 23). Aisha has blue eyes like she used to, instead of teal eyes like she has in her new design.

"Between the Earth and the Sea" (Winx season 8, episode 23): Aisha with blue eyes (Layla with blue eyes)

Here’s a shot of her with teal eyes later in the same scene:

There’s no denying that Rainbow changed Aisha’s design a lot in Winx season eight. I have nothing new to say about it. Besides, the Winx fandom complains about it every day as it is.

All I’ll say is this. Am I happy with her new design? No (except her hair). Do I prefer the original? Yes.

But do I think Rainbow will ever change her back? Sadly, no. It is what it is.

As far as my own stories go, I still imagine Aisha with her old design. And you may notice that when I commission fan art, I ask for the old design with the new outfits.

That said, what do I think of her blue eyes in this new design?

I like the new Season 8 design, yes the old will always be my favorite,
but the new design isn’t bad aswell. I think it has it’s charm to it. To be honest it isn’t the first time,
Winx Club’s animation style was never consisent throught out of all the seasons (even the old seasons).
The fandom’s pretending this is the first time in Winx history ?

And the fandom’s throwing tantrums about every change too. So does it matter? In the past they’ve been hating on the other different art styles aswell.

Sorry, i have to correct a misunderstanding. I didn’t meant to say you said it didn’t matter. My “Does it matter?” Question wasn’t personally. It was a rhetorical question.

But you are right, it’s far too late into show to change the animationstyle so drasticly. It should’ve been done earlier in the series, it’s just like Icy’s background story and Nex’s character.

I also never understood why they changed the animation. Like you said, it’s to target a younger audience. But why changing the art style? Why could’ve they not just made the characters younger in the old art style?

To me the Season 5 animation change wad dramatic too. It took me ages to get used to it.

Why do you think changing it this much wasn’t a good idea?

Say what you will, but Aisha’s Cosmix hair is BEAUTIFUL. Yas queen slay! The curls just fall in a way that’s really pretty.

I actually dont mind the design change for S8 in terms of Aisha. I especially love her hair, it’s like a modernized version of the curly hair she had in the older seasons if you ask me and I feel in the new style, she is also a lot more expressive too. And I barely noticed the eye color change if u ask me, I still find Aisha’s eye color to be pretty much the same still.

And can we talk about the fact the new artstyle is actualy very unoriginal. Throw a rock, and you’ll many other animated show with tne similar style as Season 8.
